, loose the dogs, start ripping at the skin? i know politics. i don't know this politics. obama's the president. he will be for four years. he's the guy who will make the calls politically until 2016. is this about just attacking democrats? is this about trying to convince her, mrs. clinton, not to run? if so, it might just be the easiest way to guarantee she runs. don't you think? neera tanden is a former policy director to hillary clinton, and ron reagan is an msnbc political analyst. both of you are good people to have on right now. i want to get a comment from neera, and i want a gut reaction. this disgusting attack, the back benchers, each one of these nuts, they are nutty in their behavior, hannity, "the new york post" with the disgusting front page today, rush limbaugh with his usual feminine nazi nonsense coming out. do you think this will make secretary clinton more likely to run for president or less likely that all the jackals are attacking her. >> i don't think rush limbaugh or any of these people will have a dime's bit of difference on hillary clinton. she has been
who dares to stand with obama? why can't politics be a batter matter of belief and honest disagreement, not hatred? why the sick little intermurals we saw today? we begin with senator jeanne shaheen of new hampshire. i want you to watch this back and forth between john mccain and the witness today, chuck hagel. let's take a look. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or incorrect? >> my -- >> yes or no. >> my reference -- >> can you answer the question, senator hagel? the question is were you right or wrong. that's a pretty straightforward question. >> well -- >> i would like to answer whether you were right or wrong and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer -- >> well, letted record show you refused to answer this question. now please go ahead. >> if you would like me to explain why -- >> i actually would like an answer. yes or no. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated than
't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over
and may have been reacting to cbs news political director john dickerson, who said president obama should "go for the throat." republicans are now more paranoid than ever. speaker boehner is basically whining like a coach who's had the score run up on him. i mean, boehner has a little less swagger than he did two years ago when he took over the house with this wave of tea party republicans, but what a difference a couple of years makes. president obama is not the only one who benefits from contrasting himself with the republican party. governors like chris christie and bobby jindal take occasional shots at their own party and look almost mainstream by comparison. for the record, white house press secretary jay carney said today that the president believes a strong two-party system is the foundation of our democracy. let's bring in msnbc political analyst richard wolffe and vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com. richard, great to have you on always. >> thanks, ed. >> no one, including president obama, has the power to shove the gop into the dustbin of history unless they of cour
and sounded like a grouch attacking president obama. a very political speech which i thought was discordant yesterday. there were two -- captain kelly, gabby giffords's husband, and the captain of the bald moore county sheriff's department james johnson who spoke very powerfully articulately and eloquently for common sense gun control measures, and then the other side of the panel, there were three gun nuts on the panel. david coppel, a professor from denver, a woman gail trotter, and wayne lapierre from the nra. gail trotter was out of her mine. i mean, she said guns -- i got the exact quote here -- that guns have to -- guns keep women safe. guns keep women safe. guns make women safe is the exact quote. and every mother needs an ak-15 in the home to protect their kids. and of course wayne lapierre comes back and says the only answer is we have to make every school an armed camp. >> it's time to throw an immediate blanket of security around our children. about a third of our schools right now have armed security already, because it works, and that somebody is grow
rifle association. people flagrantly brandishing their second amendment rights at political events, specifically gun toting events for president obama, showing up in campaign events in new hampshire and elsewhere, with their guns on display. and it was the gun rights groups trying to out do the nra with more inflammatory retroactive, today, wayne lapierre and the nra were determined not to allow any gun rights fanatics to sound crazier than wayne lapierre. joining me now, msnbc's krystal ball, and krystal, it seems to me that the tea party has had its effect on the nra, nudging them even further into the crazy season. >> yes, it seems to be. the nra is an elitist group, sending out the anecdotes, what you heard gail trotter remark about, they questions their membership that obama and the democrats want to come for their guns. and that has worked for a long time. but what we're seeing now, i think what we're seeing today is the death of a caricature, that stuff worked for so long. but what are we talking about? assault weapons ban, background checks for everyone. all of that makes r
is meaningless in politics. i chicago magazine article from 2006 in which barack obama was quoted in 2004 saying he wouldn't run and in 2006 saying he had no intention of running for president. >> the thing that i would be excited about is that hillary clinton would be the perfect democrat to move the health care pendulum even further where most americans want it to go. she is an advocate of universal health care, if you can get it there, which i think would be absolutely the best thing for the country. here she is at a town hall when she was asked about her future plans. this is interesting. >> i do want to see more women compete for the highest positions in their countries. and i will do what i can, whether or not it is up to me, to make a decision on my own future. i right now am not inclined to do that. but i will do everything i can to make sure that women compete at the highest levels not only in the united states, but around the world. >> you know, the big issue right now for the president is getting immigration reform passed. >> right. >> that was the issue that somewhat became problemat
't be misled here. here's something this debate is not about, wls obama wants to use immigration as a way 0 club republicans or get a bill. it's not a question. the idea that anyone outside of political partisans believe that the president doesn't want to actually sign legislation now to fulfill a campaign promise is a bit naive. maybe that was the calculus in 2010. it was not the calculus this time. sure the president is using campaign tactics to pressure congress but he wants the legislative win. he already got the political win. it's called a second term. finally, friday is hillary clinton's last day in office. now that her successor has been confirmed, she is talking to the press, including andrea mitchell in a series of exit interviews. yesterday clinton weighed in on what may be the most underreports story in washington, the unrest taking place in egypt right now. clinton stood by one of the most consciousal foreign policy decisions the administration made that gets little little -- the ouster of mubarak. she responded to the head of the army who said that the state could fall part. >
connell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party? facebook.com/carolcnn, or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be right back.
been identified. and the morning you see the obama administration interested in action rather than politics, you're going to have a different kind of tone. but we also should be looking at two things. what are the psychiatric problems and to what degree does the federal privacy law make it almost impossible to identify people who have psychological problems? i suspect we're going to find this tragic situation in alabama right this minute involves somebody with a deep psychological problem. and then, second, i think we have to look at, what is happening in big cities, where it is, in fact, largely pistols that are involved, and largely gangs that are involved? >> let me ask you about another big issue that we've been talking about a lot this week, the issue of immigration. there's been a big bipartisan push, you know, this week, including republicans, marco rubio, john mccain, talking about this comprehensive immigration reform. but, clearly, not all republicans are on board with this latest push. listen here to senator david vitter. >> i love and respect marco. i think he's just am
global zero that favors eliminating all such weapons. >>> political insiders say it looked more like a campaign event than a presidential speech. president obama pushed for immigration reform before an enthusiastic crowd in las vegas yesterday. his proposal is very similar to one being put forth by a group of bipartisan senators. >> action must follow. we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. >>> and obviously, this is -- there's certainly -- the chances are higher now that something is going to happen on this issue compared to years past. the biggest hurdle, though, is that folks who aren't too crazy about this idea are saying in order for these things to happen, let's focus on border security. if all these folks will just flood into the country, it makes no difference what we're doing on the legislative side of things. so border patrol at the same time we're creating this pathway. >> but something is going to be done. at this point, given the number of latinos that voted in this election, both sides of the aisle realize this is a voting bloc they n
for the white house in 2016. so far, all signs are saying she probably win. but president obama called her, quote, one of the finest secretaries of state on "60 minutes" did nothing to dampens the rumors. and then there was this. >> there's no political tea leaves to be read here? >> we don't have any tea. there's some water here, as best i can tell. this has been just the most extraordinary honor. >> and joining me now is steve cross. welcome. >> thanks, nice to be here. >> i want to thank you for getting every single interview i have been trying to get in the last two years on cnn, first of all. >> i have done well. a lot. >> let me ask you at the top, why do you think they keep coming to you, because there are two schools of thought. one is you're the most brilliant interviewer on television, and the other is that you give them a soft time. neither of which i suspect is entirely the truth. >> i think first of all, he likes "60 minutes." we have a huge audience. we have a format that suits him. it's long. we can do 12 minutes or 24 minutes. we do a good job of editing. and i have been do
stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. >> sounds familiar, doesn't it? 2008, maybe? >> this is very personal for me. it's not just political. it is not just public. i see what is happening. we have to reverse it. >> she's got a script. >> what is wrong with that? she stood next to caskets and pick on her for a lot of things but not that. >> the point is she cried, and a couple hours later won the new hampshire primary, she's painted as a victim and it works and if she runs which she wants to, i don't think we're done with hillary clinton. >> e inference, you are saying she did it for political reasons and i don't believe that for a second. >> the big question is, if she wins the white house it means bill is back in the white house, which means break out the plastic covering for the furniture. >> you are right, bob the clintons -- >> no! >> don't do anything for political reasons, you are right. >> whatever. >> coming up, a romance is brewing between facebook founder mark sdmrzuckerberg and new jer governor chris christie.
be on the losing sides of this debate given the political atmosphere after this election. >> keep in mind if obama wants to get something done, he would go with a piece meal approach. if it's omni bus, it's ominous. >> you read his article in the "wall street journal." >> voters will vote republican if you give them amnesty. it doesn't work. >> he got 44% of the vote in 2004. >> our job is to make sure reform means we fix the problem that brought us to where we are today. we don't have to do this every years. we have the beginning of a dialogue andy we are a long way from the finish line. >> one thing you need to see in a comprehensive bill. >> mandatory e verify. the open field searches. we are not going down the guessworker program unless we appeal the ban. the jordan commission over 30 years of saying we have to get the preferences. >> the president of the federation for american reform. loretta sanchez is the u.s. congresswoman from california. a democrat. this is just beginning. after sench years of being sem conscious, ariel sharon is showing what is being described as significant brain acti
opinion is, i don't like using children in political ads of any kind. i think consistently speaking, i also don't like the president when he uses children to sign a bill, obama care uses children as props, he used them when he did the executive orders about gun control. so those types of things on both sides to me i just have a problem with. children are innocent people in this world and they don't need to be political pawns. this is about a much bigger issue and i think we need to leave the children out of it. >> john avlon, even if you agree the only thing to me that then seems problematic about that ad with the nra is, look, the president's children do have protection. they're the children of the president of the united states. and i think it is fair to assume that in many ways those children are at higher risk than other children in this country. they are targets of kidnapping and other things. there's a reason they have that security. >> absolutely. i mean, that's why the ad doesn't pass the common sense test, there's a fundamental difference that everyone understands. if a democr
to see who can put the most lenient path forward if obama demands a smoother path to citizenship. let's make it as hard and as egregious as possible. wouldn't that work better? he questioned the political utility of a deal. not the part that involves human beings or anything. saying he reviews colorful research my friends indicating immigrants no longer came to better their lot through hard work but because they believed the government's source of prosperity. in short, they were not viable republicans. they were just moochers like the rest of us 47%. in addition to his fear that immigrants lack a basic sense of industry and responsibility, rush worried republicans will be falsely intact as intolerant because of the thing he said before that part. why would they be -- that's weird. that's crazy. [ cuckoo clock chimes ] >> stephanie: because he said he thinks you're too lazy and not hard working enough to be republicans. >> what did i say? >> stephanie: brown people are so sensitive. >> they lack some kind of chip. >> stephanie: sensitivity chip. >> something. >> stephanie: as jennifer
's reelection campaign. zuckerberg has never made a political campaign donation and openly discussed politics. he did donate $100 million to knee newark schools and supports christie's education reforms. >> barbosa went to a president dinner president obama. >> finally, earlier this week, we talked about the new board first fees being instituted by southwest airlines known for not charging fees like bag fees. on that point, ceo of the airline said yesterday, never say never. gary kelly said they have no plans to institute bag fees but if customers say they would prefer to have extra fees rather than everything being bundled in the ticket us price, they could institute bag fees in the future. >> my advice is keep it the way it is don't fix what ain't broke. >> that might be their biggest selling point. >> there is a reason why every flight is full. it's good service. they don't put the extra stupid fees on there. president obama on mopped, again, i call it a liberal manifesto. my new column about the president's inaugural address is up on the website. he point
